hi i am getting ready to upgrade my win 2003 domain to a win 2008 domain but have one issue i cannot seem to resolve.
i am running a 'ris server' with multiple xp images ok.
i have also now created an image via 'risetup.exe' onto my ris server just like i did with with 1st xp flat image.
the issue i have is that i 'pre-staged' a machine by adding the 'hostname & mac address' via my master dc aduc.
i then successfully received my win 2003 image installed onto my secondary domain member server.
when i logged on, it only allowed me to logon to the domain and 'no local user account was created' which was expected.
i then attempted to install sp2 but this would not install showing the below:
"you do not have permission to update win server 2003"
i decided to create a local 'admin' account and then logged on locally & installed sp2 successfully
i then logged onto the secondary domain member server and attempted to install 'isa 2006', but it prompts a message:
" is that after installing 'win 2003' image onto another server"
note: as i am not using 3rd party software there was no requirement to use: sysprep in order to select 'generalize' - as advised previously.
so have used 'riprep.exe' for my xp.
question 1. does anyone know if there is a way to resolve this as i have tried 'delegation, batch job, service, via my gpo and that appears not to resolve my issue ?
it maybe the proper way but i am not sure, so i was thinking about 'not pre-staging' my win 2003 domain member server and just installing and adding a new name later, to see if that rectifies my problem - but i have not tried that yet ?
